    No reason you can't participate in 'active recovery' on off days. But these aren't supposed to be 'exercise'. If you find moving around/being active therapeutic, then go for a nice walk, do yoga,...

    At 5'4" and 121 lbs you have a long ways you can go before you worry about cutting. Don't know where you live, but I'd personally continue to bulk through fall/winter/early spring and start cutting...

    If you aren't losing, you aren't in a deficit. You need to drop calories. I'd drop protein down to around 150g, and make sure the calorie intake is reduced by 250-500 from where you are right now...

    Too much cardio.
    Eat to gain 1-2 lbs per month (or 100-200 calories over maintenance daily).

    If you gain slowly you will gain primarily muscle.

    If you don't gain muscle, you're not ever going...

    The macro breakdown is fine. I guess the question is, are you consistently losing weight at your current intake?
    What program are you following for your lifting routine?

    I don't think I said anything about a personal trainer - there are dozens of 'professional' routines available for free on the internet, and on this site. Some good beginner programs are Starting...

    For one - an arm routine should never take two hours. In fact, if you are doing a single body part per workout, it should probably take less than one hour.

    Are you eating in a surplus? Gaining weight? To gain muscle you need to eat enough to gain 1-2 lbs per month.

    Looked at your pic and I'm curious what the rest of you looks like. What I see just from your stomach is run of the mill fat. I'm 5'3" and even at 120 I don't have visible abs - I happen to carry...

    at 5'5" and 116 lbs, you need to bulk. It will take 1-2 years to fill out your legs, as well as the rest of you.

    If you aren't gaining weight, you aren't gaining muscle. Adding muscle requires a CALORIE SURPLUS, and it doesn't sound like you've spent any time eating above maintenance at all.

    At 5'3" and 130 lbs, you still have fat to lose. I'd diet down a bit more - say 118-122. Once you get to that point you'll probably want to focus on a nice slow bulk. For now, count your calories...
